Hi everyone - I'm a 50 year old lady with slightly dodgy hips [ ] and have a lovely little 13.2 Fell pony who is in his early 20's. I have become convinced about the idea of a treeless saddle for our gentle hacks round the countryside - that is all we do nowadays. I have been doing a lot of exploring about treeless saddles on the web and have finally reached a choice of either a Barefoot Cheyenne or a Trekker Talent, both of which are just about in my price range. Bearing in mind I am also going to have to buy the special pad to go underneath the saddle, dressage stirrup leathers and a dressage girth too, it looks like the whole package will cost me just over £400. The Cheyenne seems to be the most popular from what I have read, but is this because it is a lot better than the Trekker or simply that it is more widely available? The Trekker actually looks more comfortable in the pictures I have seen, but I suspect this may not be so. Can anyone advise? My head is spinning with all that I have read and I seem to be going round in circles!
